UNCIVILIZED -- a summary and opinion

I accidentally bought this book.

I meant to hit 'Sample' and my silly phone screen jumped and I hit 'one-click buy' instead...

I may have freaked out a little bit. As previously stated, I have a pretty strict budget and to buy something I wasn't sure I wanted... well, it made me have a bit of anxiety. Sure, I loved ALEX, but UNCIVILIZED was another beast (no pun intended) entirely. Hockey romance I can do. Some erotica I can manage (I mean, come one, ALEX certainly had it's moments, & I'm becoming a regular, everyday BDSM reader thanks to a certain Stacey Kennedy). But this book... just seemed a bit...


Publisher: Big Dog Books, LLC (9/6/2014)
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Putting a woman on her knees before me is what really makes my cock hard. I fuck with dominant force and absolute control. I demand complete surrender from my conquests.

Savage man, loner, warrior... I am dangerous at my core. I have lived amidst the untamed wild of the rainforest, in a society that reveres me and where every woman falls before me in subjugation.

Now I've been discovered. Forced to return to a world that I have forgotten about and to a culture that is only vaguely familiar to my senses.

Dr. Moira Reed is an anthropologist who has been hired to help me transition back into modern society. It's her job to smooth away my rough edges... to teach me how to navigate properly through this new life of mine. She wants to tame me.

She'll never win.

I am wild, free and raw, and the only thing I want from the beautiful Moira Reed is to fuck her into submission.

She wants it, I am certain. I will give it to her soon.

Yes, very soon, I will become the teacher and she will become my student. And when I am finished showing her body pleasure like no other, she'll know what it feels like to be claimed by an uncivilized man.


The read was...

Intriguing, to say the least.

The minds of authors never surprise me -- any event, any situation... An author will write about it. Sawyer Bennett proves no different with UNCIVILIZED. The very first scene that had me intrigued, curious, slightly taken aback, was when Moira is recalling Zach taking mate (for all intents and purposes, a mate is what the female was when Zach took her in an animalistic way).

“I apologize,” Father Gaul said beside me, and I turned to look at him. “You’re getting a look at one of their social norms that’s completely antithetical to the modern world’s. Here… in this culture, the man is the dominant and has a right to take one of the available women whenever and wherever he wants. The Caraica view sex as a reward for the way that the man provides for the village. They are completely open in their sexuality, and privacy isn’t required. In fact, it’s a source of a man’s pride to make a woman submit for all to see.”
It's completely an unfeeling act. It's about him reaching completion. Slow and steady wins the race. It's quiet. No noise from either participant. So when he sees Moira watching, he knows without a doubt that when, not if, he takes her, she will not be a quiet participant, and he's not entirely sure how he feels about that. He's not entirely sure how he feels about the prospect of bedding Moira, to be honest... He just knows that he needs to.

I really loved Zach's journey. He knows without a doubt that he wants to go home... and to him, home is the Amazon. The more he learns of civilization, though, the more he wonders.

I could probably write and write and write about this book, but I know without a doubt I'd end up giving a FULL synopsis, and that would leave no room for you to even want to read.

It was just a superbly good read (is 'superbly' a word? Does it work...? Eh, it works for me). I love the evolution, if you will, of Zach. I love that he remembers things from his childhood and I love that he begins to question things.

I love Moira's need to be his teacher, but as with any human, I appreciate that she folds.

...besides, without folding, sometimes you don't find the true bliss that life has to offer you.
